Remembrance Of Patients Past

Remembrance Of Patients Past

Ruth Ruth, a psychiatric survivor and dramatist, engaged professor and author Geoffrey Reaume in a remembrance of patients who lived at what is now the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health during the late 1800s and early 1900s. They delved into the ethics of searching patient records and talked about the "slave labour" as Ruth Ruth put it, of the patients who were forced to work with no compensation, even when they asked for it.
